an economics professor at the university of california. his latest book is called "beyond out rage." senator, there will be final votes and a big protest on this plan tomorrow. what's going to happen? >> well, that's right. we are expecting thousands of people here at the capitol because people are angry. this governor, if the 11th hour under cover of dark in a lame duck session came out and did an about face on an issue that he said was too devicive for michigan. now they're trying to ram it through without any hearings. last week, they locked people out of the capitol. people are angry. they're going to show up tomorrow and let their voices be heard. this bill is anti-family. it's ae ee's anti-union, it's anti-america. >> senator reich, when you look at this, it was attempted in wisconsin and in virginia and in ohio. the bigger picture here is they're using legislation to really cripple their political opponents all over the country. and enhance corporate profits without having really any way for redress from the american workers. so this is not just a michigan issue or wisconsin

those making more than a million dollars a year, they get a $50,000 tax credit at the same time the gop plan raises taxes on 25 million working families by removing deductions they rely on. did boehner and company miss the election? did they manage to overlook the fact that it was all about ending the unfairness that hurts this country? they must have. the boehner also guts the safety net, it cuts money for food stamps, for the health care law and for medicaid. and, yet, somehow they're acting like this is the only plan on the table. >> senate democrats and white house refuse to act. they'll be responsible for the largest tax hike in american hus ri. >> they can support these measures or be responsible for reckless spending and the largest tax hike in american history. >> they've already put forth a plan that's balanced. >> let's extend the middle class tax cuts right now. in fact, the senate has already passed a bill doing exactly this. all we need is action from the house. and i've got the pen ready to sign the bill right away. >> if we can get a few house republicans to agree, i'
